»His TRUTH shall be thy shield…

“He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.”
Psalm 91:4

Ahem *Knock Knock* anyone out there? 10 days without blogging but I had to break the silence today as I’m meditating on Psalm 91! :) »His TRUTH shall be thy shield and buckler[Ps 91:4]! Jesus Christ is truth Himself[John 14:6] and His blood, righteousness, and salvation are as a shield and buckler all around the saints! AND the Holy Word of God is TRUTH [John 17:19]!! As I’ve been going through Luke chapter 4 this past week, I was reminded it is by the Word of God that Jesus Christ rebuked the devil when He was tempted in the wilderness[Luke 4:1-13]. Jesus was tempted 40 days!!!! [Being forty days tempted of the devil-Luke 4:2 ] yet without sin!  The Word was His shield and Buckler in time of great temptation! God’s WORD is our sword to repel Satan’s temptations. Temptation is present in all of our lives… daily!!!! BUT by God’s Word we can rebuke the devil’s schemes to tempt us to sin! Tempted to worry or be filled with anxiety[Phil 4:6]?  Tempted to doubt God’s goodness[Ps 52:1Ps 43:5]? Tempted to be bitter[Heb 12:15 Prov 14:3]? Tempted to be prideful[James 4:61 Pet 5:6]? Tempted to give up[2 Cor 4:161 Cor 9:24]? Tempted to fear[Is 41:10]? For every temptation, the Bible has a remedy that will shield us and protect us! His Word is flawless, it is sufficient, it is our TRUTH!  So, are you taking in God’s Word and arming yourself against temptation?  We are in a battle and this battle is not physical but spiritual. “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh“[2 Cor 10:3-4]. His Truth is our shield that cannot be penetrated! Are you DAILY putting on His truth as you put on a shield in time of battle? Are God’s testimonies your delight and counsellers [Ps 119:24]?  If not, you are leaving your heart completely vulnerable to attack. Put on your shield, daily arm yourself with the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God! We are promised “Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.“[Ps 91:3]! Really rather random but today I am encouraged and excited and renewed by this random musing…. That is my random thought for the week y’all! ;) Leave a comment ↓↓below↓↓ and let me know what verses encourage you in times of temptation! I’d absolutely love to hear!

“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
1 Corinthians 10:13

Random side note: I’m prayerfully working on getting back to more “frequent” blogging so please don’t give up on me! ;) Lord willing, I’ll dust off my camera, tune up my typing fingers, and share the goodness of life that God allows me to capture! ????♡

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20
